ISG Clinic Teams Feature the Best of the Best
For over 35 years, International Sports Groups clinic teams have featured the top coaches in the business spreading the game of baseball and training coaches worldwide.
No further proof is needed than to take a look at the clinic schedule for the upcoming ABCA Convention in Indianapolis. The clinic - which is the largest in the world - will feature over 300 exhibitors who will display their wares to the over 5000 coaches expected to attend. A quick look at the schedule of speakers, though, shows that many of the presenters are also coaches who have presented at ISG clinics in the past.
The circled speakers on the above image have presented or will present at future ISG clinics.
ISG is devoted to bringing the best teachers in the game to share their knowledge and skill with coaches around the world. Just another reason why coaches who want to improve and help develop the game in their country should plan on attending a clinic sponsored by their own or neighboring Federation in the coming months. A full list of upcoming clinics can be found here.

ISG Clinic Season Begins with Historic Clinic in New Zealand
For the first time in its history, International Sports Group will send a team of instructors to the land of the long white cloud to conduct a clinic in Auckland, New Zealand. The clinic will be held in late September of this year and will kick off the most ambitious schedule yet in ISG's 33 years.
This clinic marks a departure for the organization which usually begins its season of seminars with the annual European Baseball Coaches Convention in November, but the baseball forces in New Zealand felt it was time for the organization to bring its team of experts to their island nation in what is their early spring.
The EBCA clinic follows the "kiwi" session the second weekend in November. The location for this Europe-wide annual meeting will be Antwerp, Belgium.
Between the EBCA and the 2017-2018 season ending clinic in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in March, ISG teams will travel to eleven other nations and educate coaches at a total of 14 separate clinics.
Details and dates for each clinic may be found on our schedule page.
